OK, so i need a bunch of opinions from everyone here. Here is my idea, let me know what you think. Create a website devoted to the food/entertainment/shopping around my college. I would have all the things to do in the area for college students on a very simple EASY to navigate site. Categories like food/drink, shopping, entertainment blah blah. I would contact all the local businesses and see if they are interested in being placed on the site for a small fee *thinking 20-30 bucks a month*. They would get placed on their categories page *i.e. Food* (btw, each category page is like a "flyer wall") if you click their flyer, you go to a separate page all about that company, location, specials, and if they have a menu or not. I would also build a list from people who go on the site and sign up for weekly specials. It would be me sending out special deals the companies are having. Marketing: Facebook, Facebook, and more Facebook. I have an extensive network of friends from my school already, and i think i can get a group out there and get a shit load of people on board. Also, my school has a vendor fair where all the local businesses go to hand out free shit the first friday during school. HUNDREDS of kids go to this. Here I would hand out free T shirts about the site ( i have a cool design brainstorming). I was also going to run weekly drawings for gift cards for local places that agree. All kids have to do is go to the place, put there name on a piece of paper and drop it in a bin. I would collect the bin and have the drawing pulled there. I would email that person about it and give them there gift card. I would do this every week and towards the holidays do one big gift card. Something to give the kids reasons to join. Good, Bad, Ugly???? Be honest, but reasonable.
